In what may well be a sign of things to come, it appears Google has removed 30% of organic listings on local market searches in some markets.


Note that in the above images, local maps appear, however, where there was once 10 organic listings there are now 7.

Do maps qualify as organic results?

Could Google increase the page to put the 10 listings back? That would mean they have to reassess the paid landscape on the side and that's unlikely.

These results are not typical of, but are pervasive in alternate Googles.

Have a good one.
